Barack 'The Truth Teller' Obama Promises He's Not Coming For Our Guns
Down Trend -- Given his propensity for lying, it was hardly reassuring today when President Obama swore up and down that he’s not trying to take our guns away. Bear in mind that he said this in a speech where he doubled down on his position that it’s easier to buy guns than books and also that gun ownership restrictions are not a loss of freedom.
Speaking to the International Association of Chiefs of Police. in Chicago, Obama said:
“Some of you are watching certain television stations or listening to certain radio programs, please do not believe this notion that somehow I’m out to take everyone’s guns away,” he said.
“Every time a mass shootings happens, one of the saddest ironies is suddenly the purchase of guns and ammunition jumps up because folks [are]scared into thinking that, ‘Obama’s gonna use this as an excuse to take away our Second Amendment rights,’ Nobody’s doing that,” continued Obama.
Well, to be fair, every time there’s a high-profile shooting Obama talks about how great gun control is in Australia, a country that did pretty much take everyone’s guns away. If he doesn’t want us to think he coming for our guns, maybe he should stop publicly fantasizing about disarming the American people.
“We’re talking about common-sense measures to make [sure] criminals don’t get them, to make sure background checks work, to make sure that we’re protecting ourselves,” said Obama.
We already have a background check system and that has nothing to do with the way criminals obtain their firearms. There’s no way to extend this background check system to the illegal gun sale black market. How is that common sense? And while we’re at it, how does making it harder for people to legally own guns protect them from these criminals?
“I understand we won’t all agree on this issue, but it’s time to be honest, fewer gun safety laws don’t mean more freedom, they mean more danger. Certainly more danger to police. More grieving families, more Americans terrified their loved ones could be next,” said Obama trying not to laugh.
More freedom means more danger? Or to look at it another way he is saying that more gun control doesn’t mean a loss of freedom. How exactly does that work? And for that matter, how does taking away our right to self-defense make us safer? This is Obama being “honest” by the way. Kind of makes his “I’m not taking your guns away” line seem less truthful, don’t it?[...]
Considering Obama’s record of truth-telling I think it’s a certainty that when he says he isn’t coming for our guns he is in fact coming for our guns. There’s a whole group of people that liked their doctor but couldn’t keep their doctor that would agree with me on this one.
Blog Author's Comments -- I believe that Obama would like to disarm the American citizens and do away with the Second Amendment. And I also believe that before his presidency is over he will do something, perhaps with an executive order, to pass more gun control laws which will have no affect on the criminals but only hurt the law abiding gun owners.
Why does our government want more laws that only affect and criminalize law abiding citizens, instead of throwing the book at criminals caught with guns? It does not surprise me that Obama continues to praise the "Australian model" of "common sense" gun control. I don't expect to see a law officer knocking at my door wanting me to hand over any guns I might have, but I do believe that Obama will try to pass more gun control laws before he leaves office.
